History

The franchise was known as the Minneapolis Lakers from 1947 to 1960. They moved to Los Angeles in 1960. Ten years later, in the 1971-1972 season, they set the record for the longest winning streak in the NBA, with 33.

The team attained major popularity in the 80s and was nicknamed “Showtime” due to their fast-breaking team led by Magic Johnson. The team also featured leading NBA points scorer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. They won 5 titles in the “Showtime” era.

Later, the team struggled before returning to the top once more with the duo of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. 26 Los Angeles Lakers players have been inducted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
